sights on Custom TLE II

my new one has night sights on the rear and a plain black front.was wondering if this was a mistake or if they intended it. also, does anybody know when they stopped shipping an extra magazine with their pistols?

thanks, Ol' Dad

Yep, that sounds like a big mistake. Did you buy it new?

All the pics of them that I have seen on GunBroker have dot sights front and back.

Wink It's Definitely An Oops!!!

I checked the Kimber website and the page referencing the TLE II clearly states:

"Sights-
Meprolight Tritium 3-dot night sight, fixed
Radius (inches): 6.8 "


This was cut and pasted right from the web page. Like Chuck said, it's time to call the Customer Service folks!!

To save you the trouble of looking it up, here is the number for Kimber Customer Service:

Customer Service
Toll-Free: (888) 243-4522
Hours: M—F, 9 a.m.—7 p.m. Eastern

I'm sure that they will remedy your issue in a timely manner. Keep us posted as to how this progresses. I'm curious, is the front sight a plain black model or could it be a night sight that the tritium insert fell out of? Either way, you need a new front sight. I just thought that it could actually be a night sight and the insert just got jarred out during shipping. Take a close look and let us know. Thanks!!
